DPWrkShp15: Introduction to Yponomeutidae Micro Moth identification

May 16 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Trainer: Ian Sims.

Come and learn to identify this family of small ermine moths (Yponomeutidae). A variable family of 24, most start as leaf miners but several then live communally in silk webs, often in vast numbers and completely defoliating trees and hedges. Moth identification is an ideal ‘next step’ from butterfly identification and a great way to take your first steps into the world of entomology. This workshop will provide an opportunity to get more familiar with the identification features, using microscopes and specimens for close-up examination, as well as providing an introduction to how to find and record these moths in the field.

There is no prerequisite for attendees to have attended one of our previous courses and all are free of charge to attend for either BENHS members or Non-members of the society.

BENHS Indoor Meetings Secretary and Training Workshop Co-ordinator:
